Community policing launched in KMC
Monday, October 27, 2008
In a bid to reduce the crime rate in the municipality, community-based policing was recently launched in the Kanifing Municipality.
Speaking at the launching ceremony, the police PRO, Sulayman Secka said that the police have realised that certain cases which reach various police stations are not relevant. This, he said, prompted them to initiate community-based policing. "We want to work with the community and we really want to ensure that the crime rate is drastically reduced," he said.
According to PRO Secka, this system was implemented in Banjul and was success.
Also speaking at the ceremony, ASP Siray Jambang proclaimed the significance of CBP. She explained that with CBP, our community will considerably enjoy peace and tranquillity.
"We, the police, are working for the country and we are always proud of the trust and support you have for us," she maintained.
A host of other police officers, KMC councillors, and elders from the KMC also spoke at the ceremony.
